Does anyone here know how to create Web-filtering policies so that the Sophos XG firewall can also act as a replacement for AdGuard Home or PiHole ?
Thank you in advance.
Hey J ThaiYou must enter a valid domain name & regular expressions aren't allowed and it can update a maximum of 10,000 URLs in URL group !!
Hi J Thai,
Kindly see below if this may help you
Sophos XG has a built-in Ad block Category which can also be customized

Thanks for your reply buddy. Does Sophos maintain a list or category for malware, malicious and crypto-mining domains of any kind ?
Hey J Thai yes Sophos does maintain such a list. Sophos Labs and Sophos AV !!
Thanks & Regards,

Thanks for your quick reply buddy. In addition to that, does Sophos XG firewall let me fetch a collective blocklist of websites online, e.g. this one (https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hoshsadiq/adblock-nocoin-list/master/nocoin.txt) ? I can not download this list then fetch to the firewall manually because it is frequently updated online.
Below is a screenshot of AdGuard Home which allows me to fetch such lists from the Internet (mainly Github).
Thanks again buddy.
Hello J Thai,Sure you can fetch that list from the site mentioned and create a list which you can upload it under the following path:Web > URL groups > add
The default SSL/TLS exclusion rule excludes these groups from TLS decryption:
And then you can add the URL groups with the desired action as allow/block - http/https !!
Thanks for your quick response buddy.
So I understand that by copy the txt file link when adding that URL group, Sophos XG will automatically fetch the list and update it routinely for me ?
Thanks again buddy.
